Erigeron karvinskianus is a species of flowering plant in the daisy family known by the common name Latin American fleabane, though some know it as the Santa Barbara daisy.

This wildflower is native to much of South America and also Mexico, and it is naturalized in many other areas of the world, such as parts of Africa, Europe, New Zealand, and the west coast of the United States. It is also cultivated for its daisy blooms. This is a perennial plant growing from woody roots to a maximum height between one half and one meter. Its leaves are a few centimeters long and are located along the stem, the basal leaves dying off as the plant bolts. They are sometimes slightly toothed or lobed near the tips. The inflorescences hold one or more flower heads which are each about a centimeter wide. They have golden yellow disc florets in the center and a fringe of up to 80 white to pinkish ray petals.
